Participating shops in Williamsburg and Greenpoint will feature special pieces from their collections, as well as promotional discounts on various items. Local bars along the path are also getting involved with the crawl to offer drink specials or appropriately themed “Vintage Cocktails” … Yum!
“Williamsburg has become a vintage-hub for the city. From design teams to tourists, everyone knows to venture into the neighborhood yet are unfamiliar with the great stores off the beaten path of Bedford Ave.” — Kathryn Irby, Cofounder

People Behind The Crawl
Founded in 2011 by two Williamsburg residents and vintage enthusiasts, the Vintage Crawl makes finding great pieces at affordable prices easy, while promoting local Brooklyn businesses. Kathryn Irby, a former fashion editor at Lucky Magazine and vintage consultant teamed up with FreeWilliamsburg.com writer and show promoter, Emily Lichtenberg, to explore the idea of a new kind of crawl.
